"This is one of those events, like our Earth Day music festival in the spring, that appeals to a wide range of people," said Allie Lousch, marketing director for the Sunset Zoo. "Kids of all ages either trick-or-treat, enjoy the music and the wildlife or jump in to help volunteer." As the title "Wild Wild West SPOOKtacular" implies, this years event has a western theme. Zerf the Singing Cowboy is scheduled to set up a cowboy campsite on the Chautauqua stage, and zoo staff have created five candy trails, a boom town, a gold- digging station and a games area. Local organizations and busi- nesses have sponsored candy booths for the trick-or-treaters, and candy will be available in some of the activity areas. "It is an event that offers so much to visitors: chimps, snow leopards, candy, trails, all wrapped up in a Wild West pack- age," Lousch said. "Zoo admission is unique during SPOOKtacular; admission for each trick- or- treat- er is $3. Two adults accompany one trick- or- treater for free." Discounted tickets are avail- able for Friends of Sunset Zoo for $2 with the same benefit of two free accompanying adults. This event is also the last chance for people to vote in the CHIMPtas- tic Naming Contest to name the baby chimpanzee born in August. SPOOKtacular is slated to begin at noon on both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine, and will end each day at 5 p.m. Courtesy photo The proposed wind farm, like this one seen off of U.S. Interstate 70, has the potential to supply K-State's electricity from a local, renewable resource. Wind farm investment could provide energy for future General Electric Co. proposes plan to power K-State with renewable wind energy Sam Diederich staff writer Wind power could one day supply 100 percent of K-State's electricity. An exploratory proposal provid- ed to the university's administration and the KSU Foundation outlines plans for a medium- sized wind farm that could potentially supply all of the university's electricity needs. Ben Champion, director of sus- tainability, said the General Electric Co., one of the world's biggest energy investors, approached K-State about the possibility of constructing a wind farm substantial enough to supply 20 to 30 megawatts of energy to the campus. The K-State campus currently consumes approximately 121 kilo- watt-hours of energy per year, said Champion, and a 20- or 30-mega- watt wind farm could provide enough energy for K-State to be powered completely by renewable energy. Such a project would help the university respond to a rapidly changing environmental landscape. "I think the transition away from fossil energies to renewable ener- gies is an enormous global chal- lenge," Champion said. "If we were to offset all of our energy consumption through investing in a wind farm, I think it would demonstrate to the world K-State's commitment to energy responsibility" Not only would a wind farm pro- tect the environment and promote renewable energy, but it could also serve as a potential source of income for the investing entity — in this case, the KSU Foundation. "GE, because they are one of the biggest multinational companies in the world, is also basically one of the biggest banks in the world," Cham- pion said. "They have a finance di- vision that is partnering with their sales division to offer financing op- portunities for wind projects." The GE finance branch offers loans to entities interested in build- ing a wind farm. The entity, in turn, uses the loan to purchase an appro- priately sized wind farm from the GE sales branch. Ideally, after the wind farm is constructed and energy is being produced, the loan can be paid See WIND, Page 7 THE TOP 10 STATES for Wind Energy Potential as mea- sured by annual energy potential in billions of kilowatt-hours, factoring in environmental and land use exclusions for wind class of 3 and higher.

Iowa 551 K-State to host high school marching festival on Saturday Jennifer Heeke | Collegian The K-State Marching Band is set to host the Central States Marching Festival on Saturday. Members and faculty will critique 34 high school bands throughout the day. Event provides bands with experience and recruiting opportunity Michael Sellman junior staff writer Instead of roaring crowds of football fans, Bill Snyder Family Stadium will be filled with high school marching bands on Saturday during the Central States Marching Festival. A total of 34 high school marching bands are listed to perform from noon to 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 23, with a final performance by the K-State Marching Band. "This is the largest in the state," said Frank Tracz, di- rector of bands. "We're pretty proud of it. Everything about it is great." The festival, hosted by the K-State Marching Band, also known as the Pride of Wild- cat Land, is an opportunity to recruit for performing band members. Each performing band will have a one-hour clinical starting at 10 a.m. adminis- tered by both directors and staff of the K-State Marching Band and a video critique after its performance. The bands will also be evaluated by a panel of six judges from Troy University, Missouri Southern State University, University of Texas and K- State. These judges will rate each band from superior to poor on a 1-5 scale. Reper- toire, performance, coordi- nation, creativity and music are just some of the qualities judges will look at. The K-State band's two performances, The Glee Show and Blood, Sweat and Tears, are scheduled to begin at 8:45 p.m. School bands will be trav- eling from Andover, Wich- ita, Leavenworth, Topeka, Kansas City and other cities across Kansas to participate. Tracz said that although there is a 20 percent chance of rain on Saturday, "the show must go on." Students give back to Manhattan Community Service Week provides variety of volunteer opportunities Kristen Ferris junior staff center K-State's Community Ser- vice Week kicks off Saturday and will last until the end of October, giving students the opportunity to volunteer around Manhattan. "Our mission is to inspire students to take action in the community. We want them to find out what the needs of Manhattan and the surround- ing communities are and do what they can to meet those needs," said Dani Cain, senior in architectural engineering and an organizer for the event through the K-State Volunteer Center of Manhattan. Students will have multiple opportunities throughout the week to get involved in the Manhattan community, start- ing with two main activities on Saturday. "Saturday is Make a Dif- ference Day, where about 250 greeks perform services around different local commu- nities," Cain said. "They'll be cleaning up and volunteering around town as well as Milford and Tuttle Creek lakes." A group of volunteers is scheduled to offer services to Angel Food Ministries in Wichita. "The students will be pack- ing food boxes for Kansas Corps," Cain said. "Spots are still open for this trip, and we'd love to get more students in- volved." Community Service Week used to be part of the Commu- nity Service Program, but for the past three years, has been organized and executed by the K-State Volunteer Center of Manhattan. "Our number of volunteers grows more every year," Cain said. "I think that it's really important for students to realize that Manhattan isn't centered around K-State; Ashley Shenefelt senior in animal sciences and industry Cain said she hopes for a large turnout for the event. "Our number of volunteers varies from year to year, but we're hoping for around 500 people this year, including the greek community," Cain said. "We try to be as accessible to students as we possibly can. We're on Facebook and we have a website, but mostly we rely on word-of-mouth to let students know about the ac- tivities going on during Com- munity Service Week." Students can volunteer at the Riley County History Museum, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Hope Ranch and other organizations during the week. K-State students and mem- bers of the Manhattan com- munity have voiced their sup- port. "I think that it's really im- portant for students to realize that Manhattan isn't centered around K-State," said Ashley Shenefelt, senior in animal sci- ences and industry. "By giving students this op- portunity to make the Man- hattan community a better place, they're also getting the opportunity to grow in both a personal and professional manner. I think that's some- thing that K-State would want for its students." Others, like Manhattan resident Rasheed Johnson, 20, also voiced support. "I think it's great that the students are giving back to the community," Johnson said. "The great thing about com- munity service week is that you know the students who are volunteering want to be there and really want to help." More information on volun- teering and the application to participate in K-State's Com- munity Service Week can be found at the center's website, k-state.edu/ 'volunteer -center "Our mission at the K-State Volunteer Center of Manhat- tan is to inspire students to partake in leadership and civic engagement by exposure to Manhattan's needs as a com- munity," Cain said. "K-State's Community Service Week is a great way to get involved and to interface with the commu- nity.

They tread water for hours, apparently playing some sort of game. These Wildcats are practicing water polo, and they are mem- bers of one of K-States many club sports. This is a sport that began over 100 years ago, and today it is a popular Olympic sport that is gaining fans across the country. "This club has been around for four years," said David Star- shak, vice president of the club and senior in political science. "At the start of our season, there might be 30 people at our prac- tice, but once they see how tough the sport is, we usually have about 12 at the next practice." Water polo is a notoriously rough sport. Fouls are only called on plays above water, so plenty of kicking and rough play goes on under the surface. Plus, many fouls go uncalled, and players have unlimited fouls during a game. It takes three flagrant fouls, like dunking another player, to ROYAL PURPLE yearbook we've got the stories you've got to read. Get your Royal Purple yearbook in Kedzie 103, or call 785-532-6555.

Except for the goalie, players can only touch the ball with one hand. They also cannot touch the bottom of the pool while they play. "Another tough thing about water polo is that you have to play both offense and defense," said Eric Balas, club president and sophomore in history. Stamina is necessary in such a high-energy sport. "We easily swim 2,000 yards a game, plus we tread water a lot," Starshak said. Reasons vary as to why mem- bers desire to be on the team. Both Starshak and Balas swam in high school and wanted a way to stay in shape and continue being in the water. The competi- tive nature was another attrac- tion, and the relaxed atmosphere helped, too. Another benefit of being on the water polo team is that it does not require as much time as some other sports do. The team holds two practices a week that last a few hours, allowing mem- bers to stay active in other groups around campus. "Its nice to have a consistent sport, but the lower time com- mitment allows me to be active in my fraternity and other things," Balas said. Since this is a club sport, the team does not play as many games as a regular NCAA-sanc- tioned team. However, the group does get to travel to schools like Minnesota and Iowa State, and these tournaments are the high- lights of the season. The team is a member of the See POLO, Page 7 Additional fee helps colleges hire faculty $10 per credit hour fee remains, privilege fee to decrease by 2.4 percent Danny Davis senior staff writer This year's new $10 per credit hour fee has allowed all seven colleges to make im- provements. The fee, tacked on to students' tuition, re- turned to the colleges for use on personnel, instructional equipment and other instruc- tional support. In the Student Senate meeting on Thursday, Danny Unruh, student body presi- dent, gave a presentation out- lining key points to a report that detailed how the col- leges have used the additional funds. The College of Arts and Sciences spent $2.6 million on hiring 29 new faculty mem- bers, Unruh said. That expen- diture used all the money the college received from the new credit hour fee. Before the fee was put into place, the college posted a $3 million deficit and was down 40 faculty members, Unruh said. For all the colleges, $4.9 million was generated, with 77 percent of the total amount funding personnel, he said. This included both faculty and graduate teaching assistants. The College of Engineer- ing also devoted all its money to hiring new personnel, while the College of Agricul- ture spent about half on fac- ulty, Unruh said. "Those funds are now in the process of being allocat- ed," Unruh said. "This fee is not going away. It will remain at $10 or go up." The Student Senate also voted for a decrease in the Student Activity Privilege Fee. This fee is paid by stu- dents through their tuition.

SOFT TARGET Illustration by Yosuke Michishita Terrorism poses global problem beyond US, India Ever imagine attending a class that teaches you how to make bombs? Some secret schools, better known as terrorist camps, teach their students exactly this. The American Heritage New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy defines terrorism as "acts of violence committed by groups that view them- selves as victimized by some notable historic wrong." But terrorist groups have several motives, whether those be political, religious, ideologi- cal or so forth. The U.S. marked the ninth anniversary since the attack on the World Trade Center this year. The impact of these attacks stunned the whole world. "America under attack" headlines swamped newspapers and news channels. It was in- timidating to hear America was shaken. The image that the country was invincible to terrorism was beginning to fade. On the other side of the world, India does not mark such anniversaries anymore. Secularism, democracy and tolerance, which were known to be the strengths of India, have made it a soft target for terrorist attacks. I witnessed the local train bombings that happened in Mumbai in 2006. Accord- ing to a July 11, 2006, article on cnn.com, a total of seven bombs were set off over 1 1 minutes, killing more than 170 people. Bodies were torn apart, the asynchro- nous sound of the sirens of tons of ambulances ran all over the city, bloodshed everywhere — it was the worst emotional experience I have ever had. Kashmir, once known as "Paradise on Earth," became victim to the atrocities of terrorism, backed by politics more than 60 years ago, and is still in the clutches of the monster, which is threatening to take over the world. The problem of terrorism is not just in India or the U.S. It has become a global issue and is deepening its roots in the soils of different countries and continents every day. Words like infiltration, cross-border ter- rorism, suicide bombing and training camp have become a part of the common vo- cabulary of kids and adults alike. Israel has a long history associated with terrorism. Afghanistan has been used as a training and operational base by terrorist organiza- tions owing to the disor- derly radical rule of the Taliban government. Other countries in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia have been safe havens for terrorists and have been instrumental in funding and encouraging such activities. Indonesia, Egypt, Malaysia, different parts of Europe; the list goes on. The Jurist Legal Intel- ligence website reported that almost every country has a terrorism prevention law. How many have been suc- cessful at foiling terrorist at- tempts or getting a foolproof security system for citizens? I doubt any have. India has been fighting terrorism for over half a century. Unfortunately, the country is still losing the war for several reasons. A Dec. 9, 2008, New York Times article reported how terrorist organizations have evolved in their use of tech- nology and modern means of communication with the use of high-tech facilities. The masterminds behind a few of the most notorious terrorist outfits are quali- fied engineers. The judicial system was not designed to handle such acts. However, its time for a change. Also, anti-terrorist laws and organizations have met with extreme criticism on humanitarian grounds. The opposition comes from human rights activists stating these laws violate the fundamental human rights as stated in the Indian constitution. Finally, politics and loopholes in the judiciary prove to be a disadvantage for possible solutions to this problem. This is the disheartening reality many nations face. Terrorists have adopted this way of violence to make themselves heard. How long, as the recipients of this terror, should we not make ourselves heard? How much more should we depend on our governments to do it for us? It is high time that these age-old questions are an- swered and the war against terrorism be waged. The war, not against a particular community or sect, but against fanaticism, against the murderers of humanity. The community of terror- ists is growing every day by leaps and bounds. It is diffi- cult to see a way out without resorting to violent means. However, the use of force, stringent laws, military and war will not solve the issue. Schools and ed- ucation need to reach innocent children before the knowledge of bombs and jihad does. Governmental security for the protection of the family needs to reach young men before the aid of the militants. The concept of social equality needs to be accepted by everyone. Whether we can get rid of this problem is difficult to answer. But we can, of course, be hopeful and perform our own duties by being vigilant, aware and doing whatever we can to help prevent any further spread of this pandemic.

In theory, they're kind of cool simply because gameday comes earlier; what fans anticipate the whole week comes several days sooner than usual. But the cons of the schedule shift outweigh the pros. First of all, it puts Vanier Football Complex in a funk. Head coach Bill Snyder said the football program runs on a very strict schedule. Staff do certain activities on certain days leading up to games, so when gameday is moved up from Saturday to Thursday, everything gets thrown off. Of course, the ath- letes have classes and homework just like everyone else, which I would imagine makes their lives a bit more hectic than usual from that aspect as well. As an extension of this, Thursday night games present students in general with a dif- ficult decision. Should they A) miss classes to tailgate and get good seats, B) miss just their last class and get there when they can, or C) go to the class to get the education they're paying for instead of going to the game, even when they paid for tickets? In my estimation, it's pretty unfair to make students choose. Most kids or their families are paying upwards of $15,000 a year to attend K- State. That's a significant investment. Sometimes missing class isn't a big deal, but in smaller, more advanced classes, participation counts for a lot, and the discus- sions missed are hard to capture with notes from a classmate. Students who have season tickets have forked over a couple hundred dollars to see home football games. That money could go a long way toward groceries, rent, utility bills, etc. But because K- State has such a great athletics program, great tradition and great gameday atmosphere, tons of students sacrifice the bucks to be a part of the fun. The way I see it, K-State has a fantastic situation: People are enrolling in the university and supporting the athletics program by buying tickets for games. Why make it difficult for them to be a part of both? While the Wildcats expe- rienced the lowest low and highest high of the season so far — getting plastered by the Nebraska Cornhuskers 48-13 in Bill Snyder Family Stadium and shellacking KU by a score of 59-7 on the Jayhawks' home field, respectively — during Thursday night games, I prefer the roller coaster on the week- ends.

K-State hosts KU for the Sunflower Showdown on Saturday; races start at 9 a.m. Staff Reports The K-State rowing team is sched- uled to compete in the Sunflower Showdown at Tuttle Creek Reservoir tomorrow. The event has been canceled the last two years due to inclement weather. Though the teams haven't competed in Manhattan since 2007, the Wildcats currently hold the title over the Jay- hawks. Head coach Patrick Sweeney said he hopes the team can do what it has been doing so far this season. "We always have the competitive- ness" Sweeney said. "The springtime is the real season and we are looking for progression and what can happen in head-to-head races." He also said the team has been doing well in practices and looks to repeat what they did earlier this season at the Head of the Oklahoma competition, when the varsity and novice crews placed highly among the other teams in the conference. "We want to take what we took from SUNFLOWER SHOWDOWN RACE TIMES Race Time 2nd Novice 8 9 a.m. 1st Novice 8 9:15 a.m. 1st Varsity 4 9:30 a.m. 2nd Varsity 8 9:45 a.m. 1st Varsity 8 10a.m. Award ceremony following final race Oklahoma," Swee- ney said. "We have been working a lot on technique and power. We want to see if we can hold the technique and what has been taught for pressure situations." He said it will be interesting to see how it pans out for each individual. The Varsity 8 lineup remains the same from the race in Oklahoma City, but Swee- ney said there have been some chang- es. "We are still holding frame lineups, but there are some changes to the second lineup to see if they can do better," Sweeney said. Fans interested in attending the races can access the parking lot via Spillway Marina Road across the Tuttle Creek Dam. For specific driving direc- tions, check out the rowing team's page on kstatesports.com. A shuttle will be available to transport fans from the parking lot to the viewing area, which is located near the finish line at the east end of the dam. The first race, which features Re- states second Novice 8 boat, is set to begin at 9 a.m. Rowing as physically challenging as football, basketball Justin Nutter With the rowing edition of the Sunflower Showdown just one day away, take a moment to ask yourself this: How much do you really know about the sport of rowing? With practices in the early morning hours and a sched- ule that rarely features home competition, Wildcat rowers comprise one of the univer- sity's most unknown NCAA sanctioned teams. But, as this sports writer found out the hard way, the physical demands of the sport rank right up there with any football or basketball program in the country. A couple weeks ago, a certain K-State rower, who also happens to be a Collegian multimedia editor — don't worry, I won't name names — was visibly sore after logging a few thousand meters on one of the team's ergometers, or erg machines. Unfortunately for me, my brain- to-mouth filter wasn't function- ing at that exact moment, so I made a sarcastic remark. I don't remember the exact word- ing, but it was something like, "Come on, it can't be THAT hard." Apparently, that was the wrong thing to say. The anonymous rower immedi- ately challenged me to try 1,000 meters on the erg. It was a joke, or so I thought, so I laughed it off and continued on with my ill-advised comments. But, as fate would have it, the topic came up again on the way home from K-State's last football game. A certain Collegian sports editor — again, I'll leave names out of this — was within earshot, and not only did she "approve" of the rower's idea, but they decided it needed to be filmed. Not only was it really going to happen, it was going to be put on the Internet for the whole world to see. Fast-forward to the following Saturday. I arrived at the training room in Ahearn Field House and was briefed on proper form and technique — all of which I clearly forgot once I started. Not long after, I finished my "assign- ment" drenched in sweat and out of breath. Despite rowing for what felt like 30 minutes, I recorded a time of 4:21.3. I'm obviously no fine-tuned athletic machine, but covering a kilometer in under 4:30 has to be pretty solid, right? That's what I thought — at least until I saw the list of times for each team member. I would be the worst rower on the team, hands down. As if that wasn't enough good news, it was then revealed to me that a typical race covers twice the distance I had just recorded. Hats off to you, K-State rowers. You make it look a lot easier than it really is. If you want to watch me make a fool out of myself, or just want to feel better about your own athletic ability, check out the video on the Collegian's multimedia page. If you want to see how rowing is really done, head out to Tuttle Creek Reser- voir this weekend to watch the Wildcats try to defend their title against the Jayhawks.

Tennis players travel to regional tournament Danny Davis senior staff writer The tennis team will close its fall season this weekend. Four players will attend the USTA/ITA Central Region- al Championships in Fay- etteville, Ark., while the rest of the team will compete in the KU Classic. Senior Antea Huljev, junior Petra Chuda, sopho- more Karla Bonacic and freshman Peta Niedermay- erova were selected to com- pete at the regional tour- nament, which serves as a qualifying event for the ITA National Indoors Champi- onships, said head coach Steve Bietau. "This is a pretty elite tournament," Bietau said. "It's really an honor and a great opportunity for play- ers to go there." Players competing in the KU Classic will also face tough competition. They will have the opportunity to compete in a lot of matches, Bietau said. The team comes off a three-week break from tournament play. "The break has been good; we've got a lot of work done," Bietau said. "Players have worked aw- fully hard." He said he feels as if the team is well-prepared for this weekend's tournament, but he will find out when play begins. Bietau said he wants to see progress. The players have made gains in practice, but now they must do so in competition. Huljev is nearing the 50-win mark for her colle- giate career. She needs four more singles wins to reach that milestone. "The real significant thing about Antea's record is that it's come against the toughest competition," Bietau said. "None of those wins have come easily, and she's had to work for every one of them." The KU Invitational begins today and lasts through Sunday. The ITA regional championships began Thursday and lasts through Monday. Round two begins against No. 10 Longhorns Lauren Gocken | Collegian Head coach of the K-State volleyball team Suzie Fritz coaches a player during the Wildcats' match against Nebraska on Saturday evening. Tonight K-State plays Texas in Austin at 6:30 p.m. Sam Nearhood senior staff writer Round two of the conference portion of the K-State volleyball team's schedule begins tonight, and the Wildcats will not have an easy start. At 6:30 p.m., K-State (9-12, 3-7 Big 12 Conference) will play No. 10 University of Texas (13-5, 8-2), the second-best team in the conference and a power- house in the national standings. The two teams vied against each other just two weeks ago, when the Longhorns came to Manhattan and swept K-State with an implacable buildup of momentum that proved too much to overcome. This time, Texas is playing on its home court in Gregory Gymnasium, where it boasts a perfect record this season. Since the meeting earlier this month, the Longhorns have won their three matches, two of them in sweeps, and continued their steamrolling of the conference. Because the K-State volley- ball team played in Waco, Texas, on Wednesday — where Baylor dropped it in three games after an unusual period of undula- tions, which always favored the Bears in the end — the Wild- cats stayed in the state for the two days leading up to tonight's match, giving them plenty of time to rest and accustom to the different court. Senior libero Lauren Mathewson said this new situation could hinder her team. "We've never done it before, so it'll be interesting," Mathew- son said. "But I think that, any time that you're on the road, it's going to be difficult, so I think that it will be a challenge for us." Mathewson also said travel- ing in this conference, no matter the unusual circumstances, is a daunting challenge, so the team will need to be at its peak. "We're going to tough places to play at. Any place in the Big 12 is hard to play at," she said. "So I think that we're going to have to be focused and make sure we're taking care of the things on our side so that we don't let the environment and other things like that get in the way' And there are certainly many things that could get in K- State's way, like Texas's high team sta- tistics in the slots of hitting per- centage, blocks and service aces, all of which can shift momen- tum with one good play and freeze up a team in an instant. One player to watch for guaranteed action on the Longhorns' side of the net is junior middle blocker Rachael Adams, a 6-foot-2 powerhouse who ranked No. 3 among high school recruits in 2008. So far this season, she is second in the league standings for hitting percentage at .433 and fourth in blocks per game. When she last played K-State, Adams recorded a .588 and a career-high nine block assists and one solo. First serve is set for 6:30 p.m. Fans not able to attend the match can watch online at tex- assports.com or listen to KM AN 1350 for live coverage and com- mentary.

So, on the prowl, they go in search of love or its opposite, lust. However, no matter the purpose of the mission, one must first obtain an approach. This is where the "pick-up line" comes in handy. The pick-up line is very important; it plants the seed for the first impression. But which ap- proaches "work" and which are total busts? There are two types of pick-up lines: the Classic Candid, which would be a straightforward, honest or humorous approach, "Hello, my name is . I think you're beautiful and would love to get to know you better." Then there is the Cheesy Modern approach, like "Baby, somebody better call God because it's obvious he's missing an angel!" Of the two, this is probably the more commonly used among college students. Po Sen Chu, graduate student in psychology, described a study he said was performed to see which approach women respond more positively to. "The study found that the major- ity of women that performed in the study gravitated more to the 'inno- cent' and 'direct requests,' while the lesser amount of women gravitated more towards the cute pick-up lines," Chu said. He said studies revealed that more sexually charged pick-up lines usu- ally backfire on the ones using them. Chu said another study showed men usually enjoy being approached by women and nearly any pick-up line would work when women approach men. In short, he said, studies show men have a higher chance in gaining a positive response from women if they opt for the more candid approach in- stead of the cheesy pick-up line. Keunna Hayes, junior in pre- psychology, said she had never used pick-up lines on guys because she doesn't approach guys. She also said she has heard some pretty dumb lines in the past and that some lines work. However, it depends on the swag of the guy and his use of context in the line. Vernie Wright, sophomore in open option, said he doesn't use pick- up lines and opts for the honest ap- proach by just being himself. But, he said, "Pick-up lines could work out OK if you are good at it." photo illustration by Matt Binter In Prague, student eats pizza, opens mind Elena Buckner edge editor Mallori Martin is part of our weekly series on in- ternational life and travel featuring K-State students who have experienced studying abroad and stu- dents living and studying in their own countries worldwide. Martin, senior in marketing, studied in Prague, Czech Republic. Q: What was your aca- demic schedule like? I took five classes: in- ternational marketing, international retailing, labor economics, stra- tegic management and economic history. I had international marketing every Monday for two hours and labor eco- nomics every Wednes- day for two hours. My other three classes were intensive courses, which means I took them for a week during the semester and then I was done with them. I got to choose my schedule, and it really worked out for me be- cause I could travel a lot. Q: What kind of accommo- dation did you have? What did you do for food? We lived in dorms named Jarov A, B, C, D, F, G and they ranged from four- to six-people flats. We had a kitchenette in our dorm, but it wasn't the best. Six of us had to share a mini refrigerator; there was an old stove and a sink to do the dishes — no oven, microwave or dishwasher. When we did cook in our dorms, we made in- stant pasta. There were a lot of pizze- rias in Prague, so we ended up eating a lot of pizza. Q: What was the most popular night for drinking and where did people go courtesy photos Top: Kristen Tremonti, junior in human ecology, and Mallori Martin, senior in marketing, stand before the Prague State Opera during their first week in Prague. Bottom: Martin poses at the Prague Zoo with fellow K-State student Jay Timmerman (fourth from left), junior in marketing, and their friends. to drink? What was the most common drink of choice? I do not drink, but the common drinks were Pilsner Ur quell (Czech beer), Absinthe shots (it is legal there) and Krusovice (another Czech beer). Beer was cheaper than water, and Tuesday night was the most popular night for going out because Nation- 2Nation was Tuesday nights. Nation2Nation parties were insane; they were hosted by our university, but any university student in Prague could go. There was a theme each week where a different nation made a presentation about their nation that included that country's food, drinks and drinking games. Nation2Nation rotated between five different clubs. ... Several hun- dred people attended these parties. Q:What was your favorite thing about the culture? My favorite thing about the culture was the lack of a routine and that it was such a care- free atmosphere. Every day was different and we were constantly sponta- Q: What did you miss most about the U.S. or K- State? What do you miss most about Prague now? When I was abroad, I really did not miss that much until K-State went to the NCAA tourna- ment. During the NCAA tournament, we recruit- ed K-State fans and after we went out at night, we would come back and watch the games on ESPN. When K-State beat Xavier to go on to the Elite Eight at around 6:30 in the morning, we went around Prague singing the fight song! What I miss the most about the Czech Republic is more than just the beautiful city of Prague, but also the amazing people I met. I was with them for four months, and now, thinking I might not ever see them again hurts. Q: Were there any random facts or realizations you discovered there that you would like to share? Studying abroad made me realize how narrow-minded I was. It was the biggest life lesson I have ever had. I definitely grew up during this expe- rience. I am also very thankful that I had the opportunity to study abroad. Waco offers more than football for Wildcat fans Joshua Madden staff writer When asked for a comment on this week's game with Baylor University, George Weston, graduate student in public administration and sociol- ogy, asked, "Baylor still has a football team?" K-State's football team will be play- ing Baylor this weekend in Waco, Texas. This provides students the op- portunity for a road trip and any fan who wants to cheer on the Wildcats will have to make the drive, as the game will not be televised. Jordan Spencer, senior in mass communications, said he is "really upset it isn't on TV and the only way to see it is to go." However, he also said he might be able to follow the game online instead. Nathan Shaw, sophomore in soci- ology, said he has been to Waco sever- al times and likes the town. Shaw said he and his family used to stop in Waco and stay the night on the way to visit family in Texas every summer, but it has been four years since his last visit. Scott Miller, senior in leadership studies at Texas A&M, said he also visited Waco a few times. "It's pretty normal and boring, to be honest," he said. "Off campus, there aren't a whole lot of things to do. Waco is a crappy college town with really nice people. Common Grounds makes great coffee and I hear their zoo is fun." Pfc. Sean Roy, from Olathe, who is stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C., for the Marine Corps, recalled a road trip he made to Waco. "I found it to be a dirty place, not like Kansas," Roy said. "The people were pompous. I ended up getting into an argument with a waitress about how Texas was better than ev- eryone and how they were going to secede." It wasn't all negative, however. Roy said he went to a taco place where the food was "quite tasty." "Overall, I was not pleased with my trip there," Roy said. "I would not go back unless I had to, and I honestly don't know why I would." He said, however, that if he does end up attending K-State after he's done serving in the Marine Corps, he would consider going to a football game against Baylor, whether in Man- hattan or Waco. Mark Line, sophomore in me- chanical engineering, who grew up in Texas and attends K-State, gave a dif- ferent view on things than Roy. "[Baylor's] fans don't compare to K-State's," Line said. "But their foot- ball team is actually decent this year, so that may have changed." Matt McCallum, junior in eco- nomics at Baylor, said tacos are not the only tasty food in town. "George's is the best bar in town — best food and drinks," McCallum said. "It has served presidents and famous musicians. The chicken fried steak is amazing." McCallum said this weekend is Baylor's homecoming and its first op- portunity to play for a bowl game in 15 years. "It's going to be crazy since we have the oldest and largest homecoming celebration in the country," he said. "There will be a free concert, bonfire and carnival at our pep rally on Friday night." McCallum emphasized that home- coming is always the biggest game of the year at Baylor, so this game could not be more important to Baylor stu- dents. Miller said visitors to Waco might end up discovering it's the hidden things that offer the most unique ex- periences. Listing Waco's eccentricities, Miller said, "The Dr. Pepper Museum is there. Willie Nelson went to Baylor. They have two real bears on campus. Ashley and Jessica Simpson were born there." With so many random attractions to find in Waco, it might just be worth the long drive for those looking to support the Wildcats.

Because of the nature of the electrical grid, energy produced by a wind farm can be sold on the open market. "There are these things called renewable energy credits, and they can be sold to people who want to offset their con- sumption of fossil fuel energy," Champion said. "Electrons on the grid travel at the speed of light, so who gets the credit for wind energy is something that is sold on markets." The university, which Cham- pion said spent $8.5 million on electrical energy last year, could purchase the renewable energy credits from the Foundation rather than from a traditional fossil fuel energy supplier. This transaction would allow the Foundation to pay off the loan from GE, and K- State could officially claim its campus was completely powered by wind energy. However, investing in a tech- nology like wind energy raises a number of concerns. First and foremost, is the Foundation willing and able to take on the loan from GE and invest in a wind farm? The organization and the K- State administration could not be reached for comment, but Champion described the Foun- dations concerns. "The Foundation is an entity that makes a lot of investments and basically supports the uni- versity in a number of ways, but it does not have the expertise to be the owner and operator of a wind farm," Champion said. "That is basically the main con- cern. If this is moved forward, the Foundation would be re- sponsible for running a wind farm." That responsibility of keep- ing the turbines operational is the Foundations biggest incen- tive for turning down the loan and investment, but Champion said it is possible that GE or another organization would be able to provide caretakers for the turbines. Before serious action is taken, K- State must find an- swers to the question of whether such an arrangement is possible and whether the cost of mainte- nance and upkeep crews would prevent the wind farm from providing investment returns. The location of the wind farm is another issue of con- cern. "We aren't going to build a wind farm on campus or any- where near campus," Cham- pion said. "We just don't have good wind, and you need great wind if you are going to make an investment like this. But the Foundation does have prop- erty rights to a number of sites around the state that we might consider." In terms of a location's po- tential for wind energy, K- State and General Electric could not do much better than Kansas. According to a study by the Pacific Northwest Labora- tory, Kansas has the potential to create 1,070 billion kilowatt hours of energy per year by way of wind. Only North Dakota and Texas have a greater poten- tial for wind energy. Zack Pistora, senior in po- litical science and president of Students for Environmen- tal Action, said he believes K- State should make changes to its energy consumption now to prepare for the future. "As an institution of higher education, we should be aware of issues that are going to be affecting our future, and obvi- ously energy is going to be a big concern," Pistora said. "We have to think about how to get our energy sustainably and in a healthy and responsible way." Champion agreed, saying he would like to see more students join in on the energy consump- tion conversation. "I definitely encourage stu- dents to voice their desire about all kinds of energy and sustain- ability topics," Champion said. "I think it's worth students knowing that this is an opportu- nity to look into, and they have a right to voice themselves and say that the university should be looking into its renewable energy options." POLO | Tourneys a blast 5 for players Continued from Page 3 Great Plains Division, which includes schools like Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois State, Min- nesota and Iowa State. K-State plays two tournaments each season, with four games at each tournament. The drives to these tournaments can be long and tiring, but the group is close enough that they turn into a mini-vacation rather than a laborious journey. "The best thing about being on this team is the people on our team. We've grown close and the tournaments are a blast," Balas said. Starshak also said he likes the team dynamics. "I like how we bring to- gether people from different majors, different living styles and really all walks of life," Starshak said. The team is traveling to Minnesota this week for a tournament. Those interest- ed in watching the team can follow their matches through an online stream at collegiate- waterpolo.org. SGA | Senate passes fee decrease Continued from Page 3 wide organizations, and multi- cultural student organizations, among others. "The committee decided that it was reasonable to give an overall decrease," said Matthew James, privilege fee committee chair. "During the last cycle, they received a fairly signifi- cant increase, which rested in a large surplus in their reserve account." That surplus totaled $76,287. Overall, the fee will decrease by 2.4 percent. James said the committee looked at each entity individu- ally. The organizations are al- lowed to withdraw $10,000 per fiscal year from the reserve account should they require it, pending the approval of the committee, he said. A revised Principles of Community resolution was passed in Senate. The docu- ment, originally written in 2001 by governing bodies of K- State, was revised last year, but the revised document did not meet the approval of the Faculty Senate. It stalled in the Faculty Senate and underwent chang- es, Unruh said. After that, every governing body except SGA approved the document during the spring semester. The principles outline sever- al important aspects that make K- State a safe and welcoming campus. Two of the principles are "We affirm the inherent dignity and value of every person and strive to maintain an atmosphere of justice based on respect for each other," and "We affirm the value of human diversity for community." The resolution passed Thursday with unanimous consent. SGB tills?? $o do® everyone else! Happy 22™ Birthday Gloria!
